Representing the Australian Defence Simulation Office (ADSO), Calytrix Technologies participated in a week-long technical workshop in Sofia, Bulgaria. This workshop was the initial integration event of simulation systems from NATO and partner nations using the new NATO Experimentation and Training Network (NETN) FOM and HLA 1516 Evolved. The NETN FOM and Federation Agreements Document (FAD) is a set of new interoperability standards developed under the umbrella of the NATO Snow Leopard program. Using its LVC Game integration software, Calytrix proved interoperability of VBS2 with a number of simulation systems using native HLA 1516, including JCATS (USA, Bulgaria), CATS (Sweden), KORA (Germany), Orque and Wagram (France), VR Forces (Spain) and Flames (NATO).
Calytrix also supported the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV), NATO and US JFCOM in the preparation for a demonstration at the upcoming I/ITSEC conference. This demonstration shows important aspects of the Viking 2011 multinational training exercise and will be on show daily at the JFCOM Booth at I/ITSEC in Orlando, Florida.
